Informing Yourself About Health Insurance

Our current president, Donald Trump has resolved to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something else.

To help people understand what is and what might be when it comes to health insurance, Rob Bujan has decided to use his knowledge of and experience in the health insurance industry in the United States to create a blog on the subject called Pulling the Plug on Healthcare in the US: Dissecting the Regular Facts from Alternative Facts. Here's how Bujan explained the purpose of the blog in this first post:
Welcome to my blog about the health insurance industry in the United States. This blog is meant to educate you as a consumer and shed light on the actual facts of what is happening in the US with regard to healthcare and how Americans are covered under insurance.  
We will dive into the alphabet soup of healthcare and break down the ways one would access healthcare by the different delivery models.
There is a sense of panic as to what is going to happen in the future with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and I will do my best to piece together what is actually going on and how it will affect you.
However, it is everyone's responsibility to be involved in this discussion. Yes, we are in a potential crisis right now, but it should not have taken a crisis for people to understand the current delivery system in the US. Far too many people just say it is too confusing and don't take time to understand any of the mechanics of it.  
I hope to change that and start a conversation where you will learn, as a consumer, how to access your care; who provides your care on a state or federal level and who to call to voice your concerns & what to say.
Check out Pulling the Plug on Healthcare in the US. It is recommended reading.
